The best way would be to convert the current metadata into a
Metadata.xml file. Metadata.xml files store metadata about files
within your import directory in a format that Greenstone can read
easily. Within the Matadata.xml file you can format the metadata as
Dublin Core (with the colons replaced by full stops, I believe) and
Greenstone will import it as Dublin Core.
The Greenstone wiki has more information about Metadata.xml files
and their usage:
